>Does anyone know what the standard Microsoft font is for online help? I am
currently using Verdana 9pt., as my Normal font.
I hate to say it, but it depends. For WinHelp they use either MS Sans Serif or
Arial. For HTML Help they use Verdana. In both cases they use 8 point body text.
I hope that helps.
